Cafe Crema

“Cafe Crema” also refers to a long espresso drink, popular since the 1980s in southern Switzerland and northern Italy. It is generally served as the standard “café traditionnel” in Belgium. The cafè crema is not a common drink in the Anglosphere, and is virtually never available in cafés due to the need to significantly change the grind compared to standard espresso. Cafés instead serve Americanos or long blacks.
